Not so fast guys---------this is a 68
Please note the side marker lights.

Being how my FAVORITE car is a 67 Chrysler 300-----I can pretty much smell one out.
Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth all used essentially the same bodies
(might also look at some AMC cars of the same era---some of those 2dr cars had the same roof)

I had a yellow one with a black roof AND a mint green one.
The green one had the 440/4spd/discs/limited slip-----no radio/heater/undercoating (stolen 9-89)

65-66 cars were different
All cars had a much smaller "C" pillar
the plymouth line was an updated trimmer look than the 64 Fury
Dodges were longer and much more slabsided those years.
The Chryslers were long cars with flatter noses and more sculptured rear ends. the sides were both convex and concave prominent belt mouldings similar to the 65/6 Chargers (tops of fenders and qtrs). Upscale Chryslers (New Yorker/300) had glass covers over the headlights (cool).

Tried some gamma correction along w/contrast and brightness.

It's got vent windows, so if it's a GM, makes it pre-what, '68?

I can almost see an Impala, then it's gone. The first time I saw it, I immediately thought Mercury, maybe a Monterey.

I'm thinking the C-pillars are "custom", maybe.

Nothin' custom about it-----except for the baby moon hubcaps.

Full Size 1968 Dodge Polara (C-body)

Look at the roof of the 67 Chrysler I posted earlier.
Pretty much the same car
same engines/trans/rear/ subframes / floorpans

essentially the same car with different skin and bumpers

Mystery Car

Looks like it's a Mopar for sure, BUT even with the photoshop cleanup it's still an ugly sob. Alot of the cars I considered ugly years ago have started to look better when I look at the styling. This ain't one of them. Maybe with a big honkin 440 I might learn to like it. :pain:

It's a 68 for sure but didn't the Monaco 500 have the bright stainless lower trim panel? Also, the Monaco and the Polara had different grille and tail treatments. Basicly, same body but different trim level and interiors etc....hard to tell without out seeing the front and rear but from the side, I'd have to say it's a Polara....but ya, a 68.

Polara it is

Polara was the "Fury I" and "Fury II" of the Dodge line.
Base cars without a lot of frills

The Polara 500 was Dodge's "Chrysler 300" or "Sport Fury"
The Polara 500 also had much more trim than the standard Polara.
(Correct about the front and rear treatments as well)

Then there was The Monoco and Royal Monoco -- Premium price class cars with all the goodies (Think "New Yoker" & "Imperial")

Chrysler had 2 levels of the "Newport", "300", and the "New Yorker"
(300 being the Performance Chrysler-----and it was)
These cars also had way different tail and nose treatments and each was identifiable from a distance front and rear.

Plymouth cars only had the one front end treatment with the exception of the "Sport Fury's" thin little red, white and blue bar in the grill (Sport Suburban had the same bar) FuryI, Fury II shared the same tail end, Fury and Sport Fury shared tail ends.

Dodge and Chrysler shared subframes----Plymouth had it's own subframe, due to the small block engine that was not available in the Dodge or Chrysler

68-----the last year that a manual transmission was offered in these cars

Yep----I like these cars
